Multicoax connector for high speed digital testing to 50 GHz

August 31, 2017 //By Jean-Pierre Joosting
The latest addition to its MXP series of multicoax interconnection products has been announced by HUBER+SUHNER. The MXP series is designed for the high speed digital testing market and this latest version, the MXP50, has been introduced to meet the need for testing interconnectivity up to 50 GHz.

The MXP50 multicoax, dense interface pitch connector provides outstanding electrical and mechanical performance – the highest density and lowest loss – and is designed to save valuable board space while keeping the distance between the connector and the device under test to an absolute minimum.

According to HUBER+SUHNER, the broadband characteristics and the true coaxial-to-PCB transition of up to 50-Gbps / 50-GHz allows the design of evaluation boards and test set-ups for the latest generation of high speed semiconductor standards.

Key features of the MXP50 include standard absolute phase matching down to ±2ps, availability in 1x8 and 2x8 ganged formats and easy slide on, reliable mating with no threading or tools required

The use of the company's highly flexible MULTIFLEX cable in combination with a detailed numbering and coding system ensures easy channel handling without any degradation of the signal integrity.
